I am so glad you all enjoyed your stay overall. I have to say I was hesitant allowing 4 people (2 adults and two children), plus two dogs... but I made an exception due to the circumstances your family was in. In my listing it shows that I charge $40/night for any extra people exceeding 2, which I decided to waive due to the unfortunate circumstances for them needing to stay at my home. The pet fee is clear on my listing, I am sorry that was missed. I find this fee very reasonable, for both parties. It is $25/night/dog to cover the extra cleaning and the risk associated with having other people’s animals in my home.
I am sorry you felt uncomfortable with the tight quarters between my house and my neighbor’s. My next door neighbor is a good friend of mine and always looks after my house when I am gone, he was most likely seeing if I was there to talk to me or just standing on his porch.
I had an appliance repair come last week and said that the leak to the freezer should be fixed by turning the water to the refrigerator off (which it is), but I did not want to empty the ice tray because I knew your family would probably enjoy using the ice or drinks or a cooler since you were traveling from the coast. These are the funny quirks I get to live with being in a hundred year old home ;)
I appreciate the constructive review, sorry for any misunderstandings. I hope your home is safe and sound.
